Immunogenicity and safety of a tetanus-diphtheria vaccine and a 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine after concomitant vaccination in ≥ 50-year-old adults.

BMC Infect Dis 2018 Dec 5;18(1):628. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Korea University College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: When two or more vaccines are administered concurrently, there is concern about safety and immunogenicity from vaccine interaction.

Methods: Subjects aged ≥50 years were randomized 1:1:1 to receive tetanus-diphtheria (Td) + 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13; Group 1), PCV13 alone (Group 2), or Td alone (Group 3). After single or concomitant vaccination, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and opsonophagocytic assay (OPA) were performed to compare immunogenicity for Td and PCV13, respectively. Read More

HIV, HCMV and mycobacterial antibody levels: a cross-sectional study in a rural Ugandan cohort.

Trop Med Int Health 2018 Dec 1. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK.

Objectives: A growing evidence base implicates human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) as a risk factor for TB disease. We investigated total IgG and mycobacteria-specific antibodies in a cross-sectional study nested within a rural Ugandan General Population Cohort (GPC), in relation to HIV infection and the magnitude of HCMV IgG response.

Methods: Sera from 2,189 individuals (including 27 sputum-positive TB cases) were analysed for antibodies against mycobacteria (Ag85A, PPD, LAM, ESAT6/CFP10) and HCMV, tetanus toxoid (TT) and total IgG. Read More

Utilization of Antenatal Care Services in Dalit Communities in Gorkha, Nepal: A Cross-Sectional Study.

J Pregnancy 2018 1;2018:3467308. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Nursing, Lalitpur Nursing Campus, Sanepa, Lalitpur, Nepal.

Background And Objective: Antenatal care (ANC) is one of the main components of maternal health. Utilization of safe motherhood is deprived in women who belong to low-caste groups like Dalit of Nepal. Low socioeconomic status, poor knowledge and awareness on obstetric complications, lack of decision-making autonomy, and limited health care options lead to underutilization of existing maternal health care service.

HIV-1 DNA is Maintained in Antigen-Specific CD4+ T Cell Subsets in Patients on Long-Term Antiretroviral Therapy Regardless of Recurrent Antigen Exposure.

AIDS Res Hum Retroviruses 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

St. Vincent's Centre for Applied Medical Research, HIV Immunovirology, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Memory CD4+ T cells (mCD4s) containing integrated HIV DNA are considered the main barrier to a cure for HIV infection. Here we analysed HIV DNA reservoirs in antigen-specific subsets of mCD4s to delineate the mechanisms by which HIV reservoirs persist during ART.

Methods/results: HIV Gag, Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Tetanus Toxoid (TT) specific mCD4s were isolated from peripheral blood samples obtained from 11 individual subjects, 2-11 years after commencing ART. Read More

Immunogenicity of synthetic peptide constructs based on PvMSP9, a linear B-cell epitope of the P. vivax Merozoite Surface Protein-9.

Vaccine 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Laboratory of Immunoparasitology, Oswaldo Cruz Institute, Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, (FIOCRUZ), Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil. Electronic address:

Plasmodium vivax Merozoite Surface Protein-9 (PvMSP-9) is a malaria vaccine candidate naturally immunogenic in humans and able to induce high antibody titers in animals when delivered as a recombinant protein. Recently, we identified the sequence EAAPENAEPVHENA (PvMSP9) as the main linear B-cell epitope in naturally exposed individuals. However, the potential of PvMSP9 as an immunogen in experimental animal models remained unexplored. Read More

Optic neuritis following diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and inactivated poliovirus combined vaccination: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Nov 30;12(1):356. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Austin Retina Associates, 801 W. 38th St, Suite 200, Austin, TX, 78705, USA.

Background: Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and inactivated poliovirus combined vaccine is widely used in young children as part of a series of immunizations before they start attending school. Case studies of demyelinating conditions following administration of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and polio vaccine have been reported, but none so far resulting in optic neuritis. This report further contributes to the database of central nervous system demyelinating conditions affiliated with receipt of vaccines. Read More

[Basal Ganglia Circuit Mechanisms in Cognitive Learning].

Nihon Shinkei Seishin Yakurigaku Zasshi 2017 Apr;37(2):35-8

The nucleus accumbens (NAc), the ventral part of the striatum, plays a critical role in motivation, learning, and cognition in the basal ganglia circuit. Outputs of the NAc are transmitted through two parallel direct and indirect pathways. We have developed a reversible neurotransmission blocking (RNB) technique, in which neurotransmission of each pathway in the NAc is selectively blocked by specific expression of a transmission-blocking tetanus toxin (D-RNB or I-RNB).

Integrated Safety Profile of a New Approved, Fully-liquid DTaP5-HB-IPV-Hib Vaccine.

Pediatr Infect Dis J 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, USA.

Background: DTaP5-HB-IPV-Hib is a fully-liquid, hexavalent vaccine containing a 5-antigen pertussis component; approved since 2016 in Europe (Vaxelis™) for primary and booster vaccination in infants and toddlers against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and invasive diseases caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). The comparator vaccine (control) was INFANRIX™ hexa (DTaP3-IPV-HepB/Hib) in European studies and PENTACEL™ (DTaP5-IPV/Hib) in US studies.

Methods: Data from six studies were integrated and analyzed to provide a comprehensive safety profile. Read More

Vaccination for influenza and pneumococcus in patients with gastrointestinal cancer or inflammatory bowel disease: A prospective cohort study of methods for improving coverage.

Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Gastroenterology and NGERE Unit, Inserm, University Hospital of Nancy, Lorraine University, Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy, France.

Background: Although influenza and pneumococcal vaccinations for high-risk populations are recommended by current guidelines, vaccination coverage is low in patients with gastrointestinal cancer (GC) or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Aim: To evaluate the impact of a specialised infectious disease consultation on vaccination coverage rates in these patients.

Methods: Between December 2016 and April 2017, all patients with GC or IBD followed in the outpatient clinic of the Gastroenterology department at the Nancy University Hospital enrolled in a 3-phase vaccination programme. Read More

Exploring the spatial heterogeneity in different doses of vaccination coverage in India.

PLoS One 2018 28;13(11):e0207209. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Karnataka Health Promotion Trust (KHPT), Bangalore, India.

Background: Despite the universalization of immunization against the six vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs), the coverage of full immunization among the children under age five has remained a challenge globally. The 2015-16 National Family Health Survey (NFHS) indicated large disparity in the coverage of different vaccination doses (BCG, Polio, DPT and Measles) including full immunization across the districts of India. The spatial distribution of poor performing districts in terms of vaccination and the district level spatial, contextual determinants contributing to the low coverage have been poorly studied.
